A Saudi man has broken two Guinness World Records
A Saudi man has broken two Guinness World Records for the largest collection of handmade prayer beads and old car number plates, local media said Wednesday.

Mohammed Yahya Al-Assiri became the first Saudi to enter the famed Guinness Book of World Records.

Assiri's collection consists of 3,220 of handmade prayer beads which are exhibits at his personal museum in Dammam, in Saudi Arabia's eastern province. The previous record was held by a Kuwaiti national with a collection of 1,020 beads.

The second record that Assiri took is for the largest collection of 80 old car number plates issued during the era of the first Saudi king, Abdul Aziz. Some of the plates date back 65 years.

"I am very proud to be the first Saudi to enter, I wasn't aware that I was in," the zawya.com news portal quoted Assiri as saying.

Breaking Guinness records is new for the Arab world, with only five Saudi nationals currently fighting for the title. One Saudi man ate 22 scorpions keeping them in his mouth for two minutes before swallowing them.
